-- Launched in 2016, Script Revolution is the free script hosting website that offers screenwriters a platform to promote their scripts and filmmakers the tools needed to search through them.
Script Revolution was founded by CJ Walley, an indie advocate and screenwriter frustrated by the prohibitive costs and the exclusive, limiting benchmarks on other hosting platforms. Walley started the site to give aspiring writers a forum to invest in themselves, defining the movement as a "Scriptocracy."
Scriptocracy simply means one can collaborate, read and support as a community. A screenwriter himself, Walley found other hosting platforms too expensive or had rankings and qualification levels that limit or prevent a level playing field. He wants to give writers of all levels the opportunity for exposure without having to buy a position. Industry members looking for valuable specs and promising writers can browse Script Revolution unencumbered.
Walley shares, "Although Script Revolution is completely free to use, writers will find more useful features here than on most other hosting sites. Our industry really needed a safe place that was truly pro-artist. SR supports independent voices, the majority of whom can't access other sites. And, I have to add, we have great success stories!"
At only four years old, Script Revolution is gaining incredible traction. The community is nearly 10,000 members strong, the homepage receives over 1 million hits per year and it recently hit 150,000 downloads. It averages 250 script uploads and over 3,750 downloads every month... again, for free
